THIS time of year often plays havoc with the complexion so I was looking forward to a relaxing facial at Jessica Louise Beauty in Knowle.
Beauty therapist Jess Pople soon recommended the Moisture Defence Facial for my thirsty skin using MD Formulations - a science based skin care range which utilises glycolic acid found naturally in sugar cane.
The intensive one hour treatment kicked off with a thorough cleanse and exfoliation followed by the ‘critical care’ part of the facial which involved a restructuring cream massaged into my face before cling film was placed over my face!
Luckily Jess had formed a hole through which I could breathe, and after covering my, quite frankly, worried visage with a hot towel - the sensation was actually quite pleasant.
I had a very soothing head, neck and shoulder massage while the restructuring cream worked its wonders and Jess discovered areas of tension and knots that I didn’t know I had.
All too soon the cling film was whipped off and replaced with an intensive vitamin A corrector mask. This time I was treated to a wonderfully relaxing arm massage followed by a fabulous eye cream and moisturiser, both bursting with anti-oxidants.
MD normally costs £35 and is now £30.
